Who are you?

Submitted by on November 18, 2009 – 2:10 pm2 Comments

I’m a Baby Boomer. I’m creative. I’m a Cuban cook. I’m an avid reader. I’m a writer. I’m a wife. I’m a mom. I’m a good friend. (In no particular order.)

Those are some of the many and varied ways I use to describe myself and my life. I notice that I’m most apt to explain myself by the things that I do and by my relationships.

These are the women in my family. Whenever we have a family get-together, (this photo was taken at Thanksgiving last year) I insist that we take the family photos. I’m pushy that way. Because it’s so important to me to document my life and especially those so important to me. I would encourage you to do the same.

In this group, I am…


A wife.
A mother.
A daughter.
A niece.
A sister.
An aunt.
A great-aunt.
A friend.
The baby.
The Creative One.

I’m also incredibly lucky to be related to all these beautiful and amazing women.  =D

How do you describe yourself? Are you The Oldest? The Funny One? Do you use lots of nouns or adjectives to tell about yourself?

Tell me. I want to know who you are.
